Placed on a Pedestal: Famous Faces in Clay
Walkup, Nancy
SchoolArts: The Art Education Magazine for Teachers, v110 n2 p24-25 Oct 2010
Artists have created portraits of people for thousands of years. In sculpture, a portrait of a person's face often includes the neck and part of the shoulders and chest. These artworks are called portrait busts. In this article, the author describes how her fifth-grade students created clay portrait busts on pedestal columns. The objectives are for students to: (1) create a recognizable portrait bust of a famous person, historic or contemporary; and (2) recognize different types of columns used in architecture.
